US military creating microchips for killer robots

Daily Mail

But rising manufacturing costs and the limitations of existing chip technologies mean that new avenues of research are needed for this pace of growth to continue in the future. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) Electronics Resurgence Initiative's will create six new programs over the next four years. Their research hopes to ensure the predictions made by Moore's law, that computing power would double roughly every two years, will continue In 1965, Moore famously predicted that the transistor-count of integrated circuits would double every year or two while the cost per transistor would decrease. But rising manufacturing costs and the limitations of existing chip technologies mean that new avenues of research are needed for this pace of growth to continue in the future.

MIT and IBM: putting our "minds and hands" together for future of AI

#artificialintelligence

MIT's motto "Mens et Manus" (Latin for mind and hand) echoes our values here at IBM, to leverage the talent we have and create real technology with impact. Together with our fellow scientists at MIT, we selected four key pillars for our collaboration: core algorithmic advancements that enable learning and reasoning to broaden what AI systems can do, computational innovations tailored to AI and achieved through a mastery of physics, applications of AI to important domains like healthcare and cybersecurity, and achieving shared prosperity through AI technology. While a significant amount of the work we plan to do together is focused on achieving fundamental scientific breakthroughs, we are also extremely committed to leading in the application of AI to solve crucial problems in healthcare and security. Some of the questions we'll address together include the creation of AI systems that can detect and mitigate human biases, building trustworthiness and explainability into AI systems, ensuring that AI systems complement worker skills that might be in short supply and exploring how productivity gains will be distributed across firms, workers and consumers.


Google's AI chief thinks reports of the AI apocalypse are greatly exaggerated

In particular, he thinks that people are too scared about general purpose artificial intelligence. There's a lot of people that are unreasonably concerned around the rise of general AI," Giannandrea said. "Machine learning and artificial intelligence are extremely important and will revolutionize our industry. "We have been spending a lot of time looking at machine learning fairness," Giannandrea said.


How Robots, IoT And Artificial Intelligence Are Transforming The Police

Gaming consoles, Echo devices and even Fitbits have provided valuable information to help solve crimes. Several law enforcement agencies have dabbled in predictive policing including my customer the UK police in the city of Durham, England. They used a system called Hart (Harm Assessment Risk Tool) that classifies individuals and ranks the probability that they will commit another offense in the future. In the future, these types of algorithms might prove useful to detect serial crimes committed by the same individual or group.


The AI Threat Isn't Skynet - It's the End of the Middle Class

In the end, no one left Asilomar with a sure way of preventing economic upheaval. "Anyone making confident predictions about anything having to do with the future of artificial intelligence is either kidding you or kidding themselves," McAfee says. But I haven't met an AI researcher who doesn't care," Etzioni says. But they feel certain that preventing the rise of AI is not the answer.

How AI will disrupt sports entertainment networks

#artificialintelligence

Viewers are more likely to be paying attention, and the clips ultimately reach a larger audience due to highlight reel replays and social media shares. First, by tuning an algorithm to look for specific entities -- in this case sponsors' logos -- cognitive technology can find and quantify brand placements in a video. With AI technology, production teams could efficiently source relevant content to integrate past segments into the current broadcast. To beat the competition, sports networks can utilize AI technology to provide an engaging viewer experience.
